Maurice Alban

I'm a multi-instrumentalist born and raised in Queens, NY. I have a B.A. in Music from Hunter College with a concentration in drums. Growing up on 2000s alternative rock, classic grunge, hip hop, jazz, salsa, and cumbia has influenced me throughout my career, allowing me to create music that blends genres and grabs your attention. 

Influences are and not limited to, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Metallica, The Joy Formidable, Queen, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Eminem, Stevie Wonder, 

I've had the pleasure of playing and working alongside beatboxing legend and rapper Rahzel (The Roots), Emmy Winning Composer/Jazz Pianist D.D. Jackson, Warpark, Colorwave, Grayhunter, Venice Sunlight, Steve Danielsson, Christopher Weingarten, The Scruffy Pearls, Murderdance, Lauren Stockner, Edmond Paul Nicodemi, and Aaron Bastinelli & Jason Finkel at Converse Rubber Tracks Brookyln.
